better medicine. >> and that's good. but, you know, thinking of this whole-- you know, in 2010, the f.b.i. statistics show that more people in this country were beaten to death than were killed by long guns of all kinds, including the so-called assault weapons. now, anybody killed by any method say tragedy. i'm not arguing that it isn't. what i am saying, bob, is that when you look at the problem-- let's say we pass diann dianne feinstein's bill, how would that stop the next school shooting? it wouldn't. because it doesn't take guns off the street, and if you did, you couldn't. so that doesn't solve the problem. >> schieffer: but doesn't it make it more difficult? mr. keene-- >> it doesn't-- >> schieffer: if a man had talked about that school in connecticut with a baseball bat, he might have given a couple of people a concussion, but all those children would not be dead. >> well, you know, the fact that something is misused, whether it's a baseball bat or the mass killing in a chinese school with an axe and a knife, doesn't mean that you ban baseball bats, axes and knives or guns. >> schi
of different channels, some of which can be discussed in other settings. fbi is leading an investigation. the state department is actively supporting this. i have been in libya to talk to the libyan leadership about the importance of their cooperation in the investigation. we're making some progress. i wasn't in asia last week to emphasize to the tunisian president and prime minister -- i was in tunisia last week to emphasize to the tunisian president and prime minister. we're working this relentlessly. would not have the answers yet. i think a making progress. the- we d onoo not have answers yet. i think we are making progress. >> a recurring theme seems to be stovepipe decision making. have heard the bureaucratic burbidge of what the to the sixth floor, -- verbage of what got to the sixth floor, the seventh floor. what is the state department going to do to get beyond this what goes to what floor to make sure this does not happen again? >> as someone who spent a lot of time in corporate america as well, stovepipe and goes on there as well to. we of got to learn from this. we have got t
year, the fbi conducted a record 16,450,000 background checks. this year, the total so far is over 16,800,000. and that doesn't include the month of december. future legislation could affect availability of certain semiautomatic weapons, features on the guns, and the magazines that hold large numbers of rounds. without specifics, store president tom deets says any gun owner could be vulnerable. >> would the existing rifles that are in the marketplace be legal? or would they go across the board and make everything that people have previously purchased illegal? >> the uncertainty bothers non-gun owners, as well. he's a first-time gun buyer worried about protecting his family. >> why now? why today? >> so soon after the shootings? >> because i'm worried that the government's going to put so much regulations on being able to do this, you know, come future months that it's not going to be an option for me. >> industry analysts see this as a possible peak to the sales growth that began with the election of president obama four years ago. u.s. gun sales totaled $2.5 billion in 2008, this yea

-based technique that is the fbi has been using for many decades to successfully get hardened serial killers, for example, to confess to very heinous crimes. it works with detain knees as well. in fact, what i did when i went down there and the first interrogation plan they showed me was filled with just horrendous behavior escalating all the way to torture and sending people to third countries to be tortured. so that kind of stuff was ineffective. that's why they asked us to come down to help them improve their plans. and then to show them how report base works, i took the worst detainee. a guy who was doing nothing but reciting the koran from memory when interrogating him, i took him and used repoire-base techniques to connect him to a human building no matter who you are. in 11 days i got him to go from complete silence to jim, my friend, what can i do for you? he was working for us at that point. >> i think part of what we are doing here is going exactly where we don't want to go as a country, which is having a conversation about whether torture works or not. i don't think anyone credibl
guns there's more homicide. >> that's simply not true. our fbi data and our national government data show that the higher murder rates, the higher violent crime rates are in areas where gun ownership is discouraged and carrying is either illegal or discouraged. i don't know what they were looking at at harvard, but that is absolutely not what the data show. >> if you also look at the top ten states across the country and per capita gun ownership. five of those top ten states also have the highest gun deaths per capita. how do you explain that? >> they still have a low violent crime rate and a lower murder rate. so you're talking numbers versus rates, and i think that's probably where the disparity is coming in. >> last question for you here, larry. when we look at the problem ahead of us, several gun shows canceled in the wake of the newtown shooting, doesn't that go against the message that the nr ascent yesterday canceling the gun shows that canceling gun shows at least according to mr. lapierre's statements, need to be at schools and need to defend themselves. >> each gun show is

not been discussed is how quickly or the fbi -- i was troubled by how long it took the fbi to get to the scene, and we need to make sure that we are falling back to where we were before september 11 where things get stovepipe within agencies information is not being communicated, and when agencies are not working together. senator mccain pointed out an example, that there were eyewitnesses that it took days for us to get information, about what those by witnesses had seen, which would have cleared up a misrepresentation that was made about the reaction to the video from day one. i think those questions have to be answered to make sure that we prevent future attacks like this. >> there will be as we know nominations coming forward for a secretary of defense, a new director of the cia. these questions will be part of that process. they will be part of our obligation as our role of advice and consent. questions? >> you talked about the failure of leadership the report highlights. do you think people above should be held accountable? i know secretary clinton is leading. >> the buck al
responsible? why did the fbi take several weeks to get on to the site of benghazi. why were reporters finding journals of the ambassador but we still don't know what the ambassador actually really thought or said about the security risks. >> chris: you heard the clip of lindsay graham saying he wants to ask secretary clinton the what did you know and when did you know it questions. she is reportedly going to testify in january. is the controversy dead or still have some legs? >> the controversy is dead, over. over for a long time. the report says there is no coverup and no lies. it the politicized in the midst of the campaign. with regard to hillary clinton there is no indication that she saw any of the reports and the report talks about did it get to the 7th floor. that is not clear from the report. nobody is indicateing that secretary clinton had some operative decision-making role here that led to the calamity. she may say she saw some of it but it is not determinative. the larger issue here is the fact that this report and you have is credible people behind it saying we looked into all th
the fbi agents cut that are protecting our borders and our nation from a challenge. people will be cut out on programs that support the poorest americans get access to healthy food and a strong strength for their children and this is what bothers me right now. there is a way forward through this. >> there is a way forward and, peggy, i want to bring it back to you. it does seem if you look at the constellation of forces in washington, the only way that something is actually going to get to the president's desk is if house speaker john boehner agrees to let there be a vote on something that will get democratic votes and republican votes and probably shear off his most conservative members. >> that may be true. that may be where this whole thing ends, but i think it still has to be made, this point, that everybody, republicans included on capitol hill, they all know there's going to be a tax increase. they know it. >> done. >> this is coming. even if it doesn't come in sequester, it's going to come in a deal, so they all know that, but for two reasons, one for the seriousness of it, a $16 tr

the fbi take several weeks to get onto the site at benghazi? why were reporters finding journals of the ambassador, but we still don't know what the ambassador actually really thought or said about the security risks? >> chris: juan, you just heard the clip of lindsey graham saying he wants to ask hillary clinton what did you know and when did you know it question and she's reportedly going to testify in january. is the controversy dead or does it still have life. >> it is dead and over and has been for a long time. there are people who want to perpetuate it but look at the report. it says there is no cover-up, no lies, and it was politicized in the midst of the campaign. with regard to hillary clinton, there is no ends indication that she saw any of these reports, and, the report talks about, did it get to the 7th floor, that is not clear from the report but nobody indicates that she had an operative, decision making role that led to the calamity. nobody is saying that. so, you know, she may say she saw some of it, but it is not determinative. i think the larger issue here is, t
exhaustive reports one by the f.b.i. and one by the secret service that were really quite extraordinary and the secret service looked at all the shool scootings for a 26-year period and found first finding a little frustrating. one of those main findings was that there is no single profile of these shooters. and that the imaginary idea most of us have is these guys are generally loners, outcasts, that sort of thing. that's nonsense. about a third of the people are loners. they come from all different types. they're all different. so there's no single parallel between each of these incidents. and that seems a little disheartening at first but when you look a little deeper it gets much better. to my surprise, it turns out that there are only three types of killers in almost all situations. there's this rare exception to that. but for the most part if we understand three types of killers, we really understand what's going on with all these guys. but we can't try to lump them altogether they don't make sense because they're completely different. the three types are the sadistic psycho path
to his plans as police investigated him for pulling a knife on his parents on sunday. the fbi said its searching his computer for evidence. >>> a 14-year-old was arrested on thursday for a similar alleged plot in visalia and tulare county. the school district said he threatened to shoot up mount whitney high school. investigators believe it was part of a gang initiatation. he is being charged with making terrorist threats and gang enhancement. the schools have increased security. >> the nra has called for armed guards in every school but many districts say those officers are already there. oakland, san francisco, san jose all have armed police. it costs about $5 million for 20 armed officers and 80 site supervisors. >> we have taken the approach but it's at a cost. it comes at a steep cost. when you talk about loss of supporting programs through music, the arts. >> the officials say they couldn't pay to expand the security program to all 50 schools. >> instead of paying armed officers, some people think teachers should be the one with the guns. a store in little rock arkansas is no
. keep doing. go long. >>. >> gregg: we have received word that the f.b.i. has questioned a suspect in the deadly benghazi attack. this is coming as the fallout in washington continues. four state department officials resigned following a scathing reported on benghazi where christopher stevens and three our americans were murdered. peter, good to see you. are you astonished none of the murderers have been dealt with and does that go right to the white house? >> i'm outraged by it. it's three plus months. no rest from what i understand, a questioning of somebody. these are people out there that took the lives of four brave americans. it's a travesty. it is wrong. i would like to think that our special ops forces are thinking about to get these people but the signal of weakness it sends that you can kill americans with seeming inpuint and nothing has been done about it. >> gregg: only washington can you spend three months in washington only in the end to tell us what we already knew. look, this was a scathing report. it identifys systemic failures in the state department which, of cou
would like people to recognize that. especially right now because i would like the fbi to really investigate who these people talk to and who are they approached by and how the day end up looking insane? host: thanks for the call and the comment from "the new york post." - above that is the quote from swine lapierre - "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." this is from twitter -- we are asking you about the debate ahead over gun control. wayne lapierre spoke to reporters friday which was billed as a news conference but he took no questions. he took aim at the media -- [video clip] >> how many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of fame? from a national media machine that rewards them with wall-to- wall attention and a sense of identity that they crave while provoking others to try to make their mark. a dozen more killers? 100 more? how can we possibly even guess how many given our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill. the fact is this -- that would not begin to address the much larger an
that in perspective, the fbi's annual budget is $8 billion. now, i don't know where you get that money. do you raise local property taxes? do you fire 70,000 teachers? do you ask congress to kick in that money? then we're adding to the deficit. >> all right, guys. speaking of deficit, we'll turn to the fiscal cliff in just a moment. stand by. i want to bring in nbc's kristen welker with the president in honolulu. hello to you in paradise. president obama, is he as focused on the fiscal cliff today as everyone back here and on my remote live shots are? >> reporter: well, here's the answer, alex. today partisan bickering is going to be put aside, at least temporarily, with president obama and a number of members of congress and the first lady attending a memorial service that will be held for the late senator daniel inoue. that is set to get under way in about two hours. but behind the scenes i am told by white house officials that this is still very much a working vacation for president obama. i'm also told that conversations continue to go on at the staff level between staffers at the white house an
